For me, K Swiss made its mark in the tennis industry with one of the best selling shoes to date, the Ultrascendor. In 2003, Tennis Magazine awarded the shoe “Editor’s Choice” because of its superb engineering. In agreement, I wore the shoe in every match I played from juniors to college. It was for the competitive player wanting a lightweight shoe that could live through the grind of aggressive play.
As players continue to grow into more aggressive styles of play, K Swiss has engineered a new shoe, the Bigshot. Players such as Gael “I’m French and I’m Fast” Monfils, the supposed GOAT doubles pair, the Bryan Brothers, and Kateryna Bondarenko, stand by the hype of this shoe.
